Man Utd transfer news: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms Alexis Sanchez could leave this summer in a presser after the match against Wolverhampton.
The English Summer Transfer is over. Premier League clubs are no longer allowed to purchase players. However, they can still sell players until the end of this month. Other European clubs are looking to exploit this and bring in players from the English top flight to add to their roster.
Manchester United’s Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a move to Serie A according to Skysports. It seems that Inter Milan are hoping to bring the Chilean Forward into their roster through a loan move, which will be paid in part by both the clubs until June next year. They will also have the option to make the move permanent for €15M.
Manchester United Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now confirmed that there are indeed offers for Sanchez and he could be very well on his way out of Old Trafford.
Solskjaer speaks on Sanchez’s future
Speaking in a presser after their draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League, Solskjaer said:
“There’s still a couple of weeks left of the transfer window,” Solskjaer said.”And there is a chance some clubs have shown interest in Alexis, so we’ll see what happens. Can’t update you more than that.”

Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United amidst huge fanfare. However, he has since faced a torrid time at Old Trafford. The Chilean walked into the team ahead of Anthony Martial. Unfortunately for him, Sanchez, failed to nail down his spot following his disappointing performance. He has notched up only 5 goals in his entire stay with the club and has since lost his place to Anthony Martial who worked his way back to the team.
If he does move to Inter Milan, it may turn out to be a blessing for everyone involved. Sanchez could find his form in Italy and become an integral component for Antoine Conte. United on the other hand, have no further use for him as Solskjaer is now focusing his attention on youth. With his departure, they will free up a massive chunk of their wage bill and will be able to redirect it towards areas that need improvement.
